How'd you play?

Well I made my return to competitive golf today for a tournament at Metropolis CC (who new Metropolis had a CC?). Got there late and hit about 10 balls before I went out. Pushed my opening tee ball right of right and was lucky to find it. Hit a prayer wedge from 140 to a foot for a kick in bird. Kept it even par the rest of the holes and hit my tee ball on the par three 9th to 3 inches to turn at 2 under. Up and down on the back and closed with 2 over on the back for an even par 70. Won the event by two shots and got an invite to play the Sarazen Invitational at Fresh Meadow CC on Monday and Tuesday. Hate that the season is ending and I am finally playing some good golf, but darn glad to finally be playing some good golf.

Played twilight after work, tee time was 2:45 but we waited a little because it had been raining off and on all day. Winds were about 25 mph, it was brutal. We didn't get through all 18, my buddy has only been playing a few months so he's a little slow, but it was fun. Course was nice, never played there before and the views from some of the tee boxes looking back over the city were beautiful. I'm excited to play there again on the 28th

 

Played the Mizuno balls today. MP-S is a pretty solid ball, but it is no bueno in the wind. For those who like a harder ball, the MP-X is definitely that, but I don't think they're making their way to the states, you'll need a JDM connection. The X held up well in the wind, much lower flight for me, but I don't like coming into greens as low as they were coming in.

Even through 7 then fell apart. 84. Hit the longest drive of my life today. Wind was about 20 behind me, fairways were hard as a rock, and dead flat.

My wife and I played in the rain today.  Not a heavy downpour, but a steady rain.  There was standing water on a few greens that we had to avoid.  I was +1 through nine holes, but fell apart on #10 and it just got worse.  I was thinking about getting home by the fire, and just rushed all my shots.  The highlight of the day was not mine; my wife holed out from 130 yards on the par 5 #9 for eagle.

Played a 2 day event at a golf resort just out of Sydney. It was the "National Championship " of a local Aus golf forum.

First round I struggled early, 7 over after 8. Came good and finished 5 over, with one of my best 9 hole scores. Greens were exceedingly slow and I struggled to get the ball to the hole.

Today's round was a struggle after a late night fall ( possibly beer related) after slipping on a wet floor. A badly bruised elbow made for a difficult day. I drove the ball very well, irons were difficult due to pain. Putting stroke was uncomfortable. Finished 14 over, not too unhappy with the result in the circumstances

Well. My solid iron play has once again destroyed the round. 10-14 fairways, the 4 that I missed were within 3 yards of the fairways so I did t miss by much. Then I hit a total of 5/18 greens. So with 10 fairways hit, I only hit 3 of those greens. That is not a good ratio especially since I had 9 iron or less on All but 1 of them. The lack of confidence has crept into my short putting.

I missed 4 putts inside of 4 feet.

The score wasn't too bad, 81, but I feel like it could have been much better.

Played today and shot a 44 for 9.My worst score in a few months.The ball striking wasn't bad, but the misses put me in some bad spots.For example, 155 par 3 I hit a nice smooth 7 iron just slightly long over the pin.The ball hit a severe downslope and rolled into a wooded thicket.Took me 3 hacks to get out and on the green.Made a triple 6 after an iron that was actually hit very well.Was a disappointing day, but just had a day of bad breaks.

The last hole is a 520 par 5 slight dog leg left.Hit a slight push off the tee that landed 3 feet behind a lone tree 10 yards off the fairway. Not only was it behind the tree and blocked out, but also in a major divot no one ever replaced.

Just one of those days

Yesterday one of the players in our Saturday game told me that he put his first ball in the water on the 150 yd #6 Par 3, then he dropped a 2nd ball and holed out! I told him, nice Par!

Received my shipment of K-Sigs on Friday, and was looking forward to trying them out-  Sunday morning was a bit on the cool side, called for a vest and long pants, but the sun warmed us up as the day went along.  Started out Bogey, par, birdie, birdie, par, par, pushed my drive on 7, punched out and chipped to 3 feet, but missed the par putt, so I am now even going into 8.  Made a slippery downhill left to right breaking 10 footer for par on 8, and am thinking "Par on 9 and I make the turn even!!!"  I then proceed to push my drive into the next fairway right of ours, but have an opening if I make a strong draw @ 170 yards out.  End up in a greenside bunker, well below the elevated green- I make a good pass at the ball and it pops out, lands about a yard short of the pin and releases -yes- into the cup for a birdie!- I make the turn at -1 (35) - a personal best for me. 

 

Came back to earth on the back 9, shooting a 41, including a birdie and a triple! - Post a record round of 76- and chuckle when the computer asks "This score is outside the players' normal range (no kidding) is this correct?"  YES, it was correct.  

 

So, was it the K-Sigs?  Was it that I trusted the ball?  Was it that I trusted my swing?  I did putt well, with about a half dozen 1-putts, and some rather accurate chipping to boot- but, all that said, when I got home I immediately went online to COSTCO, to order another 4 dozen K-Sigs, but alas, they are sold out again...  I do like them!
